War and Peace
Not the Numbers Game Series|
Women in Bosnia are rebuilding war-torn lives.
"When both my sons were killed during the bombing," recalls Halida, "I had to learn how to start my life over again."
The civil war in Bosnia was characterized by genocide and extraordinary cruelty - with women's rights violated on all sides. This film tells the inspiring story of three women who have rebuilt their lives. Bulka took in two orphaned girls; Maja has given her severely wounded husband the will to live; and Halida founded a network of bereaved mothers.
